6:30pm Reception, 7:00pm Dinner

Some of you may know that Neal and Chef Anthony met as students at the Culinary Institute of America.  One of the most talented members of their class was Marc Zimmerman.  On May 15th, they will reunite for an evening of food and drink and you are invited to join us!  The promise of Zimmerman's skill has been fully realized as he is now Executive Chef of Alexander's Steak House in San Francisco.  He is among a handful of Kobe Beef specialists in the U.S. and is also the founder of Simpleton Brewing.  Marc’s prior experience includes working for such lauded chefs as Guy Savoy, Nobu Matsuhisa and Takashi Yagihashi.  His cuisine uses premium ingredients to form precise and elegant courses.  Anthony and Marc have collaborated on a sequence of courses for the evening that will be paired with wines from California selected by Neal.
